    Abstract

    Mathematics and computers applications have evolved over the past 25 years in exercise and sport science. Bachelor's degrees were gradually introduced over the past 25 years and the dependence on mathematics and computers has evolved from a novelty to high dependence. For example, from simple software programs to computers to transform with analogue to digital signal analysis via force platforms, metabolic carts to assess O2 and CO2, respiration rates and volumes and ECG; software for motion analysis and mathematical solutions related to linear and angular kinematics to today, where they are the driving platforms for E-learning, computer assisted learning, instrumentation and statistical and signal analysis via multivariate software packages, signal analysis and signal transformations. The question is with the current high dependence on computers to derive mathematical and statistical solutions, as well as now an indispensible component in delivery of university courses within Australia, have we actually improved the skill set of exercise and sports scientists and training related to applications of mathematics and computers to solving and understanding exercise and sport science research questions?
